Women's Aid Slams Adam's Treatment Of Rosie On Love Island


Share this article


A domestic abuse charity is using Love Island as an example of how to spot early signs of emotional abuse.

Women's Aid says there are 'clear warning signs' in the behaviour of Adam Collard over how he has treated Rosie, after moving on with new arrival Zara McDermott.

He blamed her insecurity for pushing him away and faced a massive backlash from fans of the show.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Adam is the worst type of guy. He wants to jump ship but can&#39;t be honest so starts blaming the girl. He did it to Kendall and now he&#39;s doing it to Rosie. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/LoveIsland?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#LoveIsland</a></p>&mdash; Love Island Reactions (@LoveIsIandUK) <a href="https://twitter.com/LoveIsIandUK/status/1009169411587149825?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">June 19, 2018</a></blockquote>

Women's Aid says questioning someone's memory of events, trivialising their thoughts and feelings and turning things around to blame the other person can be a pattern of emotional abuse.
